A former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder was sentenced Friday to 12½ years in prison for the shooting of an unarmed woman who had called 911. He apologized in court for “taking the life of a perfect person.”
Mohamed Noor, 33, was convicted in April of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Noor shot Damond when she approached his squad car in the alley behind her home.
